The 25-year-old was in the starting 11 today for Ritchie Humphreys’ reserve side at Blundell Park.

It’s the first competitive game of the season for the Spireites’ second string side.

Humphreys, who is taking charge of them in an official capacity this season, said: “We’ve had our warm-up game as a group and the league starts now.

“The important thing for me is that the players take on board all that the manager has said to them in pre-season and this younger group take that on board and show us that they’re willing, eager and ready to take on information.”
